Proud to be a Girlfriend!

I have been listening to Danielle for what seems like forever, and I am so grateful to be able to have her podcast. I feel like I get to have weekly coffee with a friend, and I love how she just speaks truth—no agendas, no gossip, no elaborate suggestions, just real life, wonderful advice. Love her and I’m so grateful for her effort to make this podcast!

Danielle gives her audience such a gift in every episode of Girlfriends. She covers relevant topics that women in the Church are interested in, while offering encouragement to affirm Catholic women in their vocations and in their true worth as God created them.

Blessing at just the right time!

At a point in my life where I was craving friendship with other Catholic like-minded women and wondering where to even start, Girlfriends fell right on my lap. Danielle is so relatable, motivational and uplifting. She has been able to help me in my spiritual journey as a young woman, wife and mom of 3 children (3 and under!). Thank you Danielle for all you do.
